"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader."
~Robert Frost

I'm taking Sherry Lewis' "Riding the Emotional Rollercoaster" class and she posted this saying this morning. Very appropriate for the class and it really touched me so I thought I'd share it.

That's one thing I really hope to accomplish as a writer, to make the reader feel. The books I remember the most are the ones that made me gasp, or made my chest tighten with emotion, right along with the characters. And I hope that someday, I'll be able to move a reader with the emotion in my story.

Hope it's a great Tuesday for everyone!
Peace and Love,
Alannah
